Powell’s Books interviewed Open City editor Joanna Yas (read Â here). She said: “I’m afraid that even though more and more people decide to be writers every day, I’m not sure if the same amount decides to be serious readers.” If that don’t strike to the heart of it, I’m not sure what does.
That said, a lack of serious readers ain’t because there’s no good readin’ out there. Check out the current installment of Powell’s Books Indiespensible series, bringing you four of PANK’s favorite lit mags to your doorstep – The Believer, The Paris Review, Open City, and Tin House.
